By Ishaan . January 11, 2013 . 10:30am

Konami have released a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, showing off some of the costumes you’ll be able to outfit Raiden with in the game, including the Cyborg Ninja and retailer-specific costumes in Japan. Take a look at the trailer below:



In North America, the Cyborg Ninja costume is a GameStop pre-order exclusive, while in Europe, all copies of Metal Gear Rising will include the costume. You can also dress Raiden up in other outfits such as a Mariachi uniform, which you can see here.


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 19th in North America.

    Sorry MGS4 Raiden and other skins, there’s just no reason to use you when I can run around as freaking GRAY FOX.

    • Sperium3000

      GRAY FOX with yellow colorings for some reason. There is a joke in there….

  • Anime10121

    I freking HATE retailer specific DLC :( Why oh why cant Amazon have that beautiful, beautiful work of art :(

  • Raoni Marques

    I miss the good old days when you just had to unlock costumes instead of paying money for them. They’ll eventually be released as DLC in the future, and since I’m fucking stupid, I’m gonna pay for the Gray Fox one and keep the DLC Mob running

    • XiaomuArisu

      Dont forget that the best costume is unlockable in-game…
      The Mariachi costume!

    • Kaihedgie

      “I miss the good old days when you just had to unlock costumes instead of paying money for them.” So what do you call Mortal Kombat?

  • Kris

    I’m hoping that these are unlockable in addition to being DLC… It’s rare, but not unprecedented!

    I really want MGS4 Raiden, I’ve always liked that design (especially the see-through lower lip)! I wonder how I can get him…

    Also, it sounds like they added a little beeping sound indicator to moving your blade over the Zandatsu square in blade mode. Probably a good choice. It seems like they’ve been making Zandatsu easier to do with each update I’ve seen… which I have some mixed feelings about given the way it restored life in the demos I played.

  • Holy crap, dat Gray Fox. And he’s even modeled after the Play Arts Kai figure. Love it. Probably gonna play with the standard skin for the first playthrough, but after that… Gray Fox all the way!

  • DarthSithZero

    Yep there’s no point to be Raiden at the beginning this is what all i wanted when they announced this game as a Hack-n-Slash.

  • ZEROthefirst

    I hope they actually call it the Gray Fox outfit in the game instead of the whole Ninja Cyborg outfit that they keep advertising it as. Either way I’ll be playing 100% as Gray Fox through this game, maybe the Mariachi outfit too… just for fun.

    • Solomon_Kano

      It shows in the trailer that the outfit is called Grey Fox in the game.

      • ZEROthefirst

        I know, but that’s the Japanese version of the game and they specifically call it the Gray Fox outfit.

        • Solomon_Kano

          I doubt the localization team would change the name of the outfit. There just wouldn’t be any reason for that. For marketing purposes it’s been referred to as Cyborg Ninja, but I’m betting it’ll say Gray Fox when you boot up the game.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Aw yea! Gray Fox AND MGS4 Raiden!

    MGS4 Raiden beats GF out on the suit I want to use more by simple virtue of wishing I could play those Raiden cutscenes in MGS4. Now I don’t have to wish! Gray Fox does look pretty damn sweet in HD though!

  • Draculoid

    Didn’t see a comment about this but very curious. The blood in this trailer is all silver, did the game recieve some censoring I missed?

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Japanese version has white blood NA/EU will have normal blood.

  • Pokahontas McGuigan

    grey fox costume looks dope

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Metal Gear Solid 4’s Raiden is pretty cool… but why not bring his badass coat!?

    • z_merquise

      Badass longcoat makes someone look more badass it seems.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    How about a more human looking Raiden as an alt costume just like the one from the trailer who has a suit?

  • Isaac Newton

    formula of the day


  • Ty Arnold

    You win this one, Europe.

    You deserve to win at least one, after all.

  • dahuuuundge

    Leave it to Gamestop to cut out content for the gamers and market it as preorder exclusive

    • Mister_Nep

      Power to the players!
